How to import a signed certificate to a FileZilla Server?

#1 Post by jovsel » 2019-01-29 14:14

Hi,

We have a FileZilla Server Application which is used for transferring logs from our BlueCoat Proxy devices to a Server. Now, our management is suggesting if we can import a certificate to the Filezilla Server Application signed by our CA. Is this possible and how?


Thank you,

Jovie

Sure. Just make sure .pem also contains the chain to the root.

First get a file in PEM format containing not just your certificate, but also the certificate chain to the root. Also get a file containing your private key, again in PEM.

Put these two files some place where the Windows account the FileZilla Server service runs under has access to, adjust the ACLs if needed.

Last but not least, on the TLS page in FileZilla Server's settings dialog, enter the paths to these files and hit OK.

That's it.
